Seahawks’ CB Byron Maxwell to opposing quarterbacks: “Keep coming at me”

With NFL teams scared to throw Richard Sherman’s way,  Seahawks cornerback Byron Maxwell is challenging opposing quarterbacks to throw his way. “Keep coming at me,” Maxwell told ESPN 710 in Seattle. Even though Philip Rivers doesn’t plan on avoiding Sherman this week,  I’m sure Maxwell will get plenty of balls thrown his way. var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551'...

Seattle Seahawks: Profiling the new corners

For the Seattle Seahawks, Legion of Boom’s starters are sources of inspiration and confidence. Their performance is almost a foregone conclusion before the game begins. They are the ideal four-man secondary. The guys behind them have a similar swagger. In past years, it was Byron Maxwell, Walter Thurmond and Jeremy Lane providing that extra talent in the nickel and dime packages...

Richard Sherman confronts Aaron Rodgers

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman did not record a stat in Thursday night’s 36-16 victory against the Green Bay Packers. After the game, Sherman confronted Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on why he didn’t throw the ball his way. Sherman appeared to say to Rodgers, “you avoided me, didn’t you?” to which Rodgers responded, “yup” and walked away. video via...

Bruce Irvin: ‘I’m going to pray’ for Packers’ Corey Linsley

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin feels sorry for Green Bay Packers rookie center Corey Linsley. Linsley will start Thursday night in the loudest stadium in the NFL, CenturyLink Field, without having had a single snap with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in preseason play. “I’m going to pray for him,” Irvin told reporters Tuesday, via ESPN. “It’s going to be a long night...

Jeremy Lane should be starting for Seahawks after tremendous game vs. Bears

It’s not exactly fair to say that the Seattle Seahawks defense, especially the secondary, has “weaknesses.” More like, they have some positions that “aren’t All-Pro-caliber.” With that distinction in mind, I think it’s fair to say that Byron Maxwell has been the “weak” link in the secondary. With Richard Sherman locking down one opposing receiver, and Earl Thomas...

Seattle Seahawks: Preseason loss doesn’t matter

I don’t care that last night’s preseason opener was a Super Bowl rematch between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. I didn’t care about the Seahawks’ winning streak in the preseason getting snapped. The preseason means nothing. Nothing. In a given preseason game, the starting sides play a few series of real ball, and then they are taken out of the game to avoid injury...

Is Byron Maxwell overrated or a secret superstar?

When both Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond faced suspensions heading into December of 2013, 12s could not be blamed for wondering how well our Legion of Boom could hold up going into the final month of the season. Few knew the sixth-round draft pick sporting the Seahawks’ number 41 and that ever-so-slightly tilted face mask. Upon filling the void left by those suspensions though...

Forced into the spotlight on Monday night: Byron Maxwell

World & 12th man on his shoulders One injury and two suspensions later, and Byron Maxwell has found himself starting for the Seattle Seahawks at cornerback. Surely this isn’t how the former sixth-round pick from Clemson envisioned his ascension towards the top of the Seahawks depth chart, but one can only hope he’s come to terms with it over the prolonged break in-between...

The Seahawks stats don’t lie; Pre-Season week 1

Byron Maxwell Put on Quite the Show For the better part of this summer, Seattle Seahawks fans have been subject to Walter Thurmond hype that can only be described as a little excessive. At one moment he’s competing with Brandon Browner for a starting role, and the next he might even be a better cover corner than Richard Sherman. That’s cute, but what about Byron Maxwell? Thrown...
